Republican firebrand Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia has been on a tear recently. She just yesterday went after Mitch McConnell and it seem that she has no intention of stopping. Earlier today, Greene has gone scorched earth and has demanded an apology from 2016 Democratic Presidential nominee Hillary Clinton in a new social media post. Elon Musk’s Twitter has reinstated the personal account of far-right Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, which was banned in January for violating the platform’s COVID misinformation policies.
In fact, it has just recently been reported by MagaConservatives that:
“And your truth had to be banned, because your truth was the wrong truth, and this is how this all started. I’ll never forget when Hillary Clinton called everyone supporting Trump ‘deplorables.’
“Wasn’t that a nasty thing for her to do, to declare half of the country basically like we’re kind of subclass? That’s where all this started and how we got treated and it should have never happened that way.
MagaConservatives went on to report that:
“She should apologize. Hillary Clinton owes America an apology.”
Speaking at a September 2016 fundraiser in New York City, Clinton said:
“You know, to just be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump’s supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables.”
Greene had her personal Twitter account reinstated yesterday and many on the left were furious.
“I’m the only Member of Congress the unelected big tech oligarchs permanently banned. On January 2, 2022, they violated my freedom of speech and ability to campaign & fundraise crying ‘covid misinformation.’”
“My account is back.
“Go follow @mtgreenee for MTG unfiltered ;)”
U.S. House Rep Matt Gaetz (R-FL) said before the ban was lifted:
“The censorship of Marjorie Taylor Greene is wrong as wrong can be.”
“Hope all judgy hall monitors stay on other platforms – please, I’m begging u.”
It was further reported by USA Today that:
Elon Musk’s Twitter has reinstated the personal account of far-right Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene more than 10 months after permanently being suspended for “repeated violations” of the platform’s COVID misinformation policies.
The Georgia Republican’s account had also been suspended in July 2021 for publishing incorrect information on COVID vaccinations and wearing face masks during the pandemic.
The move, which took place Monday, comes days after the social media platform reinstated the account of former President Donald Trump amid a season of upheaval at the platform that has accompanied Musk’s takeover of the company.
Greene and Trump are among a slew of people whose accounts were disabled and recently restored.
It was further reported that:
The first tweet Monday from her reinstated personal account read, “Free speech is dead” and included an hour and 14 minute video she recorded live on the platform.
“I think it’s time to talk about how free speech is dead and I know that sounds like something interesting to say especially the very day that I get my personal Twitter account back but the reality is I should have never lost it in the first place,” she says in the video.
Green apparently wants more accounts reinstated. On her congressional account Tuesday, she retweeted a list of names Twitter user @lporiginalg said should also be reinstated including white nationalist Nick Fuentes who was banned from the platform last year, and conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, banned in 2018 for abusive behavior.
So, it seems like it is simply another day at the office for Elon Musk. In fact, The Raging Patriot reported that Musk said he voted Republican for the first time ever – casting a ballot for Mayra Flores who claimed victory in the special election for Texas’ 34th Congressional District, flipping the House seat red. She will be the first Mexican-born congresswoman to serve in the House.
Musk also predicted a massive red wave is coming in 2022 and suggested he is leaning toward voting for Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis for president, should he decide to run in 2024.
